Fall Veggies

August 15, 2018

Rita and I get excited about our fall vegetable garden. The reason is we eat a big salad almost every night and there is nothing like picking fresh lettuce, spinach and kale leaves just minutes before dinner.

There are many vegetables that you can plant now for harvest this fall. You may have space in your garden where some of your early summer vegetables have finished doing their thing. This will give you room to plant lettuce, spinach, turnips, mustard, kale, collards, and other cool weather veggies that are not really bothered by frost. Some of you in Florida, Texas, Arizona and other southern states with mild winters also have the opportunity to plant other vegetables including squash, cucumber, tomato and many others. And do not forget to plant a few containers with lettuce, spinach or a good mesclun mix to set around your deck or patio.

When planting in directly into the ground, replenish your soil by mixing in an inch or two of Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Organic Garden Soil. When planting in containers, start with a fresh bag of Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Organic Potting Mix. (Garden Soil is for mixing with native soil in the ground while Potting Mix is for containers and hanging baskets.) And don’t forget to give your veggies some plant food to maximize your harvest. If you do not feed them you may end up with puny plants. We like to use Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care Organic Vegetable Food.

Here is a link to some great Bonnie Plants fall gardening tips and video that will help make a big difference in your fall vegetable garden.
